Add support for cross-compilation with PERL path different between --build and --host

Description

NixOS (and some other cross-OS cases, or using localy-built perl) have different paths to build-time perl (--build) and run-time perl (--host). Build system does not distinguish between those. As a result build fails as (if we use ./configure PERL=${runtime}/perl):

install: cannot stat './mc.hlp.es': No such file or directory

The proposed change adds PERL_FOR_BUILD variable (similar to autoconf's CC_FOR_BUILD and friends) to fix the build for such special cases.
